"One of the great short story writers of our time - of any time."
-- Philadelphia Inquirer
Few American writers are more admired than the late Raymond Carver. In Where I'm Calling From, his highly-acclaimed short story collection, Carver displays an astounding genius.
Carver's stories are populated by characters living in an unforgiving world, suffering the burdens of displacement, divorce, despair. These people snarl and bark and speak in bursts of rough-and tumble dialogue. They are everybody, anybody, nobody. Here, Carver has captured a heart-wrenchingly poignant world of real people with real problems, convincingly portrayed in a spare and gritty style.
A final testament to Carver's towering talent, Where I'm Calling From is a mesmerizing masterpiece of fiction, drama, and poetry.
